Business Formation

To bring a project from an idea to fruition, there are several issues that developers and builders need to address, such as:

  • Finance
  • Zoning
  • Contracts
  • Leases
  • Landlord/tenant issues
  • Initial planning
  • Development
  • Construction
  • Entity formation

When complications arise, our attorneys can step in to resolve them. For instance, business owners may start out with the wrong entity formation that causes tax implications they had hoped to avoid. Their loan documents may contain covenants that cause problems down the road with future developments. Provisions in leases or condominium documents may cause problems when a consumer purchases or leases a unit.

We not only take steps to resolve problems, we draft documents that prevent these problems from arising in the first place. Before starting a business, the most prudent step you can take is to contact a lawyer. We will discuss the nature of the project and your plans for making the project happen, help you understand what steps to take to protect yourself from unforeseen costs and disputes, and keep your project running on an even keel.
